Suspect not charged for West End shooting, arrested for other gun-related offenses

A 40-year-old Alexandria man suspected of participating in a drive-by shooting in the West End earlier this month was released on bond shortly after being booked in the Alexandria jail.

On January 8, police were called to the area of South Pickett Street and Edsall Road after a witness reported a man driving a black Nissan point a handgun outside of the window and fire two rounds at an unknown person, according to a search warrant affidavit.

Police recovered two shell casings at the scene.

The witness was able to get a partial license plate on a Virginia tag, and the vehicle matched surveillance footage from a nearby apartment complex. The suspect was found to live a short distance from where the incident occurred, and was arrested four days later.

Police said he was considered to be armed and dangerous, but he was not charged with the shooting offense. The man was charged with larceny of firearm, possession of firearm by convicted felon, and was released on $1,000 bond the same day as his arrest.
